6:09pm

6:10pm
year so a lot of challenges with a lot of inexperienced people so we'll see how they deal with it very soon. >> i'm sure voters would like to see some things get done. but time will tell. thank you, grace. the u.s. supreme court is keeping the political world in suspense over the issue of gay marriage. justices once again did not decide today that they will take up the case. they will meet again friday to determine which petitions they will hear next year. >> it's like well we have so many cases on the docket let's just nut off until next week. no big deal and that's what happened. so it's really the dog that didn't park. it's a case that hasn't been resolved yet and we are just waiting. >> here's what's at stake. if the court denies a review, marriages could start in days. otherwise the status quo maintains until the appeal plays out. the bizarre tactic john

jose teenager brought the city's homicide rate to a 20- year high. police found the body of the teenager on pacific avenue late friday night. cbs 5 reporter len ramirez asked the mayor what is going on. len. >> reporter: no one really seems to know the answer to that question. but with every new homicide here in san jose, it seems to ratchet up the pressure between the mayor's office and the police union and as you said another young man is dead. family and friends of the slain teenager washed cars to rain money for the funeral. 17-year-old daniel capetillo was shot near his home on pacific avenue in an apparent gang-related killing. >> he was a good kid. i miss him so much. >> reporter: neighbors say the murder is part of an overall increase of crime in the area. >> we have had a lot of break- ins and robberies, homicide, things you don't normally see around this time of year.
6:15pm
>> one homicide is too many and 43 is quite high. >> reporter: san jose mayor chuck reed says he doesn't know why the murder rate is so high tying a 20 year high. >> we need to respond and our department has one of the best clearance rates of any police department in the country. and we will bring the rate down again. >> reporter: he denied allegations from the police union that the rise in crime is a direct result of pension reform measures pushed by the mayor. union officers say cutbacks, layoffs and dismantling the a crime team means officers are moving from call to call during shifts and cut down on pro active policing. officer initiated car and pedestrian stops are down by more than 100,000 since pension reform measures took effect. >> we don't get to contact the gang members and hunt down the crews breaking into houses. he would don't have a full-time gang unit. we don't have the other pro- active units that do that. a big parts of our success
6:16pm
against crime is pro activity. we are now reactive. >> reporter: so 43 murders in san jose is the 20-year high, dana. it would take another 10 homicides, no one wants to see that, but the record was set in 1991 with 53 homicides. >> let's not get there. len, thank you. checking bay area headlines, two chp officers suffered minor injuries after this. their patrol car flipped during a chase in livermore. it happened around 4 a.m. on eastbound 580 near altamont pass road. the driver and passenger of the speeding car were eventually arrested near stockton. and another chase this one started in san jose and ended in oakland. chp officers wanted to stop the car because it didn't have its headlights on. at times, they reached speeds of 90 miles an hour and finally used a spike strip to stop that driver. he was arrested for recklessly evading police officers. two of the three

6:18pm
>> reporter: it would also be good politics. you see, the subway was going to stop here in chinatown. but to get all the equipment in and out to build it, they would have to keep boring on down the street to north beach and pull all the machinery out by digging a big pitch here at this intersection. >> it's going to disrupt the whole neighborhood and damage business. >> reporter: so the feeling was, chinatown gets the subway station and north beach gets the shaft. >> i've heard that phrase. now, i think they raised a very legitimate point. records and those concerns including threatened lawsuits and a lot of heat aimed at city hall. but by giving north beach a pete's of the subway deal, folks are at least taking a second look at the idea. >> they are proposing 1500 people per hour to be dropped off into the neighborhood. why wouldn't it make sense? >> it depends how they put it together. >> reporter: deals like this don't come cheap. a north beach stop could cost the project $500 million to $1 billion extra. and at this point, no one is really sure where the money is
6:19pm
going to come from. so the squeaky wheel is getting the grease. >> we're being responsible and responsive public servants just as you would like us to be. >> reporter: well, they are certainly being responsive and by the way, if they do get it here, they are going to not stop here. there's already talk about extending the subway to fisherman's wharf. so just keep your eyes on this plan. it's expanding fast. >> so is that half a billion dollars to a billion before the cost overruns or after, phil? >> reporter: i'm the cynic around here. [ laughter ] >> reporter: that's before the overruns. >> we'll see. all right. phil matier, thank you. all right. meteorologist paul deanno is ready and rain is coming but this time just rain. >> just plain rain not storm number 4. we had a little overrun of rainfall this weekend and you had issues. we had a lot of issues around

the bay area, wind, rain, flooding. san jose is nice and calm just cloudy outside right now. south bay a beautiful shot there. the background the embarcadero center lit up beautifully for the holiday season. these are highs. >> next weathermaker sitting right off the sonoma and marin coastline. i wouldn't be surprised if you got light showers coming up tonight. the rest of us from the peninsula southward will stay mainly dry. there will be showers. no additional flooding on the 101 corridor. st. helena flirted with flooding over the weekend. here's a picture from the presidio trail where there's a sinkhole and we have a sign saying, please keep out. it's not safe. the trail is closed. despite that our photographer
6:21pm
caught plenty of people using the trail despite it's bumpy after the rain. here's the setup in the atmosphere why i'm not worried about additional flooding this time. there's an area of high pressure building in just in time to take this next weathermaker and shove it just far enough to the north to keep the heavy rain way from us. the storm track is going farther north and this next weather system really isn't as strong, isn't as juicy as the last several so for all of that reason heavy rainfall will stay away from the bay area. we'll get some rain but not flooding rain from this particular system moving in tonight and tomorrow. so showers return for everybody by tomorrow evening. we'll have hit or miss rainfall during the day on wednesday. but flooding will not be a concern. so rain yes. flooding, no. highs tomorrow right around 60 degrees for san francisco. livermore 63. still a couple of degrees above average. oakland 62. san jose your high tomorrow 63 degrees. it will be cloudy with showers in the afternoon. wednesday wet with just some rainfall out there and after that we'll dry out for a while thursday all the way through the weekend and top of next week. highs in the low to mid-60s,
6:22pm
partly to mostly sunny. but five days of dry weather starting thursday. that is your cbs 5 forecast. >> thank you. the most expensive house in a bay area city could finally have a buyer. the selling price for the san francisco mansion that, oh, by the way is a fixer upper. and more than a month after the giants clinched the title, how a world series bet is finally being settled. ,, ,,,,,,,,

6:26pm
although not this one. 2901 broadway which was reduced quite a bit to roughly $34 million. still, it is san francisco's most expensive piece of real estate. >> this is a small house considering the -- but it's really prominent. the vows are extraordinary. you feel like you're on top of the mountain. you're king of the hill. >> reporter: small for the block. 7,000 square feet, eight bedrooms, 7.5 baths, and balconies you can do shakespeare off of. it is a fixer upper. it's going to need millions in repairs. >> it would be fun to be invited to a ball. seems like they should have ballroom dancing. >> reporter: these two tourists would need an invite from the owners if the deal goes through. we don't know who it is. somebody rich. they were sightseeing along what's known as the gold coast, billionaire's row. >> if it's billionaire's row and it goes for 34 million, it
6:27pm
would be a steal. >> the consumer is doing at the very top level is, you know, the "fiscal cliff" doesn't seem to be apparently an issue for them. >> reporter: a potential change in capital gains taxes coming up, maybe that was the driving force for the sale this time. or not. the rich may be just like you and me. they just have enough money not to care about such things. mike sugerman, cbs 5. well, for the rest of us, coming up in the next half hour, the "fiscal cliff." it's staring in the face of washington. with less than a month until the deadline, why president obama is spending time on twitter. >> the new evidence linking brain damage to repeated concussions. why a bay area doctor says it's still too early to ban tackle football for kids. i'm delighted for them. i'm sure they will make absolutely brilliant parents. >> the royal couple is expecting. why kate though is in the hospital and will be for several days. ,,,,,,

>> reporter: we have a lot to learn about concussion. we don't know how many it takes to cause trouble or if there are predisposing factors. concussions in one person may not be like concussions in another. so as some call for banning tackle football for younger children, manley says not so fast. >> i think it would be a rush to judgment to say stop kids from playing collision sports. we need to make sure that coaches are well trained, that kids are really instructed on how to have heads up play and really hit with the shoulders and not with the head. so i don't think it's time to bury football. >> reporter: it's not just football. concussion happens in all sports. saint ignatius high school in san francisco has just started monitoring all boys and girls playing soccer, lacrosse and football. they are tested before the season starts and retested anytime there's an incident. the results help determine when it's safe to return to play. dr. kim mulvihill, cbs 5. it is one of the first

the storms that blew through the bay area brought down a lot of trees, and that's a hard lesson for homeowners who are cleaning up today. cbs 5 consumerwatch report offer julie watts explains, your insurance doesn't always cover falling trees. >> reporter: it's something many are likely learning following the weekend storm. we received photos from across the bay area of downtown trees on homes and cars. and they provided pretty clear example of what's covered and what's not. for instance, this one from san mateo is a good example of what is covered. homeowners insurance will pay for tree damage to your home, its contents and other structures on the property whether the tree was on your property or your neighbor's. but when it comes it paying for tree removal in cases like this, you might be on your own. if a fallen tree doesn't damage your home, insurance will generally only pay to remove it if it's blocking a driveway. insurance advocates warn depending on your deductible it

we'll be hearing a lot about that child in the coming weeks. here we go. weather time now. we have a beautiful shot of san francisco on a calm monday evening. boy was it not calm yesterday morning. winds howling 50 to 60 miles per hour rain heavy at times widespread flooding on streets and tonight just a whole truckload of nothing. livermore 54 degrees. san francisco 56. cooling off even with cloudy conditions santa rosa 54. and oakland right now 57. hi-def doppler is now showing a couple of very light showers moving onshore out to point reyes, santa rosa and healdsburg. you may get showers tonight and we'll be watching those showers moving in tomorrow especially and then also on wednesday. notice i'm saying showers and not rain. there's a reason for that. showers are just kind of intermitten not that heavy. rain is what you had yesterday and last friday and wednesday.
6:48pm
i'm not expecting that this time. the atmosphere doesn't have as much water in it for this storm. an area of high pressure is building in off the southern california coastline taking the storm track, aimed right at us and moving it hundreds of miles to the north. very key because even an indirect hit makes a big change and we are not going to see that much rain from this particular system. so will we see rainfall? will all of us get more rain? we will starting tomorrow through wednesday but will it be a flood maker? no. heavy rainfall will stay away from this system. it's not another tropical weathermaker like we've seen. showers back for everybody tomorrow afternoon some of you tonight. on-and-off rain on wednesday no flooding a concern. here's something sunny to look forward to if you will. the climate prediction center puts out outlook that is go all the way out to two weeks. this one shows the entire state of drier than normal until a week before christmas.
6:49pm
so long-range forecasts say we will not be wet. instead we will be dry. tomorrow there will be some showers around. santa clara 63. palo alto 62. san mateo your high 61. 63 for walnut creek tomorrow. afternoon showers 62. wet from start to finish but scattered showers for santa rosa, 58 bodega bay, sausalito 61. wednesday showers end but not until late in the day. next couple of days cloudy, showery. thursday through saturday dry, sunday dry and next monday dry. so five straight dry days after we get through this next weathermaker which will not cause any flooding. we'll be right back.

♪ secondhand smoke affects everyone's health.
6:52pm
it's not just irritating. it can cause heart disease and even death. speak up about secondhand smoke. your health and the health of your family depend on it. dennis hello from the coliseum arena. it will be a sold-out crowd no big man no problem for the warriors who reached the 10 win plateau. >> it's not right. when i try it train for extended periods it doesn't respond well. >> reporter: bogut hasn't been playing for a month with ankle surgery.
6:53pm
>> i wanted to play the first game of the season. i never missed an opening night in my career and i didn't want to miss one. >> reporter: still the warriors don't have the big man the franchise has desperately needed in decades. despite that the warriors are 10-6. they haven't been in first place this deep in a season since 2005. curry leads the team in scoring and is healthy. harrison barnes looks like a keeper scoring double figure this is five of his last nine games. alongside is carl landry. with bogut out he stepped up. carl, it is interesting to see you decided to sign with the warriors because thought they were a play-off team. this team has gone to the play- offs once in the past 18 years. what convinced you it might be different? >> i thought, you know, the
6:54pm
signings in the summertime, the pieces they added with what already what they had, you know, just made a good team. >> reporter: when bogut went down they thought they lost a key piece of the puzzle. why has it been different without him? >> you have a bunch of hungry guys in the locker room. no matter who coach jackson puts on the floor, we are all going to fight every possession of the game. >> reporter: you were one of the best big men off the bench over 14 points a game. would you prefer that? >> it don't matter. like i said, you know, it's a bunch of players in the locker room. i'm one of those guys. it doesn't matter if coach plays me, starts me, if he plays me 5 minutes or 25 minutes. i'm all about winning and i think guys in the locker room are sacrificing numbers to win ballgames. >> david lee is a calming influence. he called you the big boring. are you a boring guy? >> i don't know. now, i just come in every day,
6:55pm
you know, do what i supposed to do try to be as professional as possible kind of quiet at times but everybody doesn't have a personality like david. >> or you don't have 1500 pairs of shoes in your closet like jackson. >> reporter: not at all. i keep it simple, baby. >> reporter: but you guys are having fun? >> yeah. >> keep up the good work. >> thank you. >> we have some baseball news and it's big deal with angel pagan. he has re-signed. led the league with 15 triples. he hit below .200 in the post- season but was excellent defensively in the post-season for the giants. despite the loss in st. louis, jim harbaugh is going to stick with his hot hand against the dolphins this sunday. but it comes with a disclaimer.
6:56pm
>> alex is not out of this. >> right now, he is not in it, either. colin kaepernick made a series of mistakes yesterday against the rams that added up to a loss none bigger than the botched pitch that led to st. louis' only touchdown of the game. harbaugh did not pin the blame on his young quarterback. >> that's on us as a wrong play call at that time. would have loved to have that one back. don't blame the players on that one. it was too risky to play at that time. >> i don't know what they were trying to accomplish there. we took advantage of one of the mistakes. >> reporter: check it out. the road to the nfc west is looking tougher than in september. seahawks a game and a half behind san francisco and they have a potential showdown or the horizon later this month in september. so it's the warriors the magic the warriors have not had a perfect home stand since 1992.
